Gold Cap Challenge: Update 31

I put in a good bit of work on my mage this week. I managed to unlock the rank 2 recipes for the crafted blacksmithing gear this week. I also got access to the bracers from tailoring. I have also been putting some effort into getting garrisons up and running, and I am close to producing items on my mage.

What did I do?

I worked primarily on my mage this week. I’ve been working on the order hall, gearing it as well as getting the garrison and profession recipes up in parallel. There’s a ton of work to get a new character up and running fully. I am close to getting all the item level 850 gear I want unlocked.  I have all the blacksmithing recipes, and I started crafting the bracers this week. I haven’t had time to get the right materials for the rest though. Demonsteel bars are really annoying to get.

My garrison is pretty much at full speed for my mage now with full level 3 profession buildings. The DH one is much slower as I am very much starved for Garrison resources.

I hit a new high in gold this week, and I am currently sitting well above 4.5 million on my banked. My total gold is about 5.4 million so we are now over half way there!

TSM sales

I had some extremely nice BoE sales this week! Antorus BoEs and 101s sold. I also sold a panther as well as the usual smattering of crafted armor and flasks.

We hit 340k in sales even though I was away for most of the weekend, so that is really nice! I also had a gap in the middle of the week where I didn’t have time to repost auctions. Overall the week looked quite good and I am looking to be on a good pace right now!

This was my best week in sales in 5 weeks and we hit 440k in sales, which is quite nice.

I am still selling a smattering of food, even though I mostly ran out. Enchant prices have tanked completely and I did not post or sell any of those this week. Gems are also selling really slow. I will have to check if it is my settings or if I’ve run out.


My inventory continues getting skewed toward other items than BoEs, which is really nice. The Ghost Iron prices have been rising consistently which causes both the value increase for Ghost Iron and for Trillium. I have a very healthy panther stockpile now. The highmountain Ritual-stones were purchased to level Archeology faster when I started farming for Vial of the Sands. I doubt I will sell them at all.

  1. First of all, thanks for another excellent post, and keep up the good work,…you are a source of inspiration to all of us aspiring and new goblins!

    Now for the rest 🙂

    It took me long enough (lots of things happening IRL, good and bad), but I’ve finally come up with a professions setup for my main + alts for BfA. Here’s my reasoning, and the setup I arrived at after many ideas, attempts,…and breaks in the whole process!

    * All professions covered.
    * 4 – 5 transmute alchemists + maybe 1 elixer master for flasks to make Vials.
    * 1 Druid for gathering.
    * Enough herbalists and miners to be able to gather my own mats even when not all alts are max level yet.
    * Tailoring on at least 1 character of each role.
    * Enchanting on at least 1 character of each role and armor type.
    * The multiples of tailoring and enchanting is to always be able to bring either of the professions to a mythic dungeon or LFR and either get mats or whatever the new BoS is that’s needed for crafting and drops from mythic or LFR bosses.

    Professions setup for BfA:

    Death Knight (BElf)
    Enchanting / Alchemy
    Death Knight 2 (Orc)
    Blacksmithing / Mining
    Demon Hunter
    Enchanting / Tailoring
    Herbalism / Mining
    Hunter (Orc)
    Leatherworking / Skinning
    Hunter 2 (BElf)
    Tailoring / Skinning
    Alchemy / Tailoring
    Inscription / Herbalism
    Jewelcrafting / Mining
    (Paladin 2)
    Enchanting / Mining
    Alchemy / Tailoring
    Engineering / Mining
    Alchemy / Herbalism
    Enchanting / Tailoring
    Alchemy / Herbalism

    Breakdown by profession:

    Alchemy 5
    Blacksmithing 1
    Enchanting 4
    Engineering 1
    Inscription 1
    Jewelcrafting 1
    Leatherworking 1
    Tailoring 5

    Herbalism 4
    Mining 5
    Skinning 2

    If the extra enchanters turn out to not work out, then I’ll probably turn them into engineers.

    My question to you is, do you have any last-minute suggestions from an experienced goblin’s perspective? Thanks in advance for info!

    1. Setup looks good to me. I do ‘t have as many alts as you so my focus is one of each and then duplicate alchemy engineering for the dailies.

      Personally I’m not a fan of duplicate gathering professions. I don’t believe that random gathering while out in the world moves the needle enough. Gathering only makes sense to me in terms of dedicated farming sessions. This is based on the fact that my playtime is fairly limited though, so your mileage my vary.

      The most important thing to do is too re-evaluate as you go and gather new information. Don’t be afraid to switch things out if something doesnt work.
